What is an Exam Preparation Program?

Global Village Victoria offers full-time, part-time and customised private schedules to help exam candidates prepare for the exam of their choice.

Our most popular exam preparation program – IELTS – involves a combination of morning and afternoon option classes that combine exam taking skills with academic or general English language skills to produce a more organic learning experience with like-minded students in a classroom setting.

Our Exam Preparation Programs at Global Village

Global Village Victoria helps candidates prepare for IELTS (International English Language Testing System) and CELPIP (Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program). These exams are useful to prove your English proficiency when applying for work, getting into universities and colleges, as well as for immigration to an English-Speaking country.

For our full-time IELTS learners, the exam-focused lessons are offset with more communicative skill-based classes that attempt to help the candidate learn the language in a more contextual, task-based environment. In this way, a more well-rounded, organic learning experience is achieved.

What is the difference in these tests/exams?

What is IELTS?

In Canada, IELTS is used as a measure of English language proficiency for immigration, skilled worker applications, university entrance requirements, Masters Programs, and other professional designations.

What is CELPIP?

CELPIP, The Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program, is a proficiency test for General English. The test clearly, accurately, and precisely assesses a test taker’s English abilities in a variety of situations, such as communicating in the workplace, interacting with friends, understanding media, and interpreting and responding to written materials.

Who are these courses for?

Global Village Victoria offers English exam preparation courses which are designed to meet the needs of those students and test candidates who need to have official qualifications of their language proficiency. Many governments and academic institutions accept these exams as reliable indicators of an individual’s English language capability – particularly when focussing on the specific skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening. They can therefore be used as proof of English language ability when applying to university or college or when applying for immigration to countries which require a level of English language proficiency.

When are these courses offered?

IELTS test preparation at Global Village Victoria is offered as a full-time or part-time program Monday – Friday.

CELPIP test preparation at Global Village Victoria is an online evening program offered two nights per week – Monday and Wednesday.

Please see the Class Schedules page for more information.
